The characters that I think influenced Esperanza in the book her mom because whenever she had a problem or if something was going on in her life and if she thought something was wrong but people still did it like when tito’s friends took her friends key and said they wouldn’t give it back unless she would give each of them a kiss for them back and she did not think that they should make her do that to get her keys back. Her mom would tell her that she was right and that those boys’ shouldn’t make her do that and she help her write a note so she
For the ones who decided to take the path of optimism and perseverance, they understood that the two major components in a human’s response to individual conflict. Throughout the Holocaust, many individuals suffered lack of optimism, such as being apprehensive about an inevitable extermination.

Anne Frank expresses her opinions in her diary, “I don 't think I 'll ever feel at home in this house, but that doesn 't mean I hate it...The Annex is an ideal place to hide in...there 's probably not a more comfortable hiding place…” (Frank). Anne, though she is
Carol Dweck, the author of the book entitled “Mindset”, did a great job of portraying her inquisitive thoughts throughout the book. Also, the book was informative and made me wonder about my “mindset” and my life in the future. Dweck, throughout the book, explains that mindsets start early as a child and perseveres into adulthood. She explains that this mindset can drive many aspects of our lives going from parenting and being in relationships to sports, school, and work. Most of the book which stands out to me, is the author’s encouragement to her readers, that anyone can change their mindset at any time, age, or state of mind in their life.

Sharing our thoughts it’s decisive and all our speech has to be explain the root of the problem with facts based on the reality, otherwise we can retract into silence or violence. This book has been extremely useful for me, because it has taught me how to maintain control in those crucial moments, probably it is easier for me know to spot those with the reactions like silence or violence which are attitudes that usually we know that happen but probably what I did not know is that it happens when the person doesn’t feel safe, that’s the key. Normally, when we don’t know the strategies it is harder for us to identify what we are doing wrong, therefore we can make numerous mistakes. We have to bear in mind that always has to prevail the mutual respect and the mutual purpose to have a fruitful crucial conversation. Therefore, mastering this skill of effective communication can make a difference in all the aspects in our
Discovering the meaning of friendship or finding out the order of one’s priorities can appear as unimportant tasks, but these activities bring fulfillment to people of all kinds. For example, Janie was extremely naïve when it came to concepts regarding love. She believed that marriage would bring her love eventually. She heard this from her grandmother, but was soon proven wrong as shown by the quote, “She knew now that marriage did not make love.” (Hurston 29). The latter quote is clear evidence that people should not leave it to others to inform them of how certain concepts in life work.

She talks about how self pity is a natural part of the human experience of grieving, and she convinces the reader of this too. She shows the reader that this is how she copes. As a reader, or at least for me, I understand and appreciate this. This book is kind of a downer, and it can be rather technical at times, but it remains a page turner because of the great flow and smooth stories. Also, the technicality of this piece rings true to the person that you learn Didion is.
I’ve got something...Presents!” She also gives us a moment of hope at the end when she reassures Peter that everything will be okay. The green police have found out that they were inside the house and were coming to arrest them. Anne and Peter are arguing and Anne tells him to have religion. She says that you need to have something to believe in, something to give you comfort and make you feel safe. Anne says, “I wish you had a religion, Peter... Oh, I don’t mean you have to be an Orthodox...or believe in Heaven and Hell...I just mean some religion…it doesn’t matter what.
I found myself asking throughout the story, if those kids which were fed the fixed mindset would be harmed. In other words would they be able to change back into the growth mindset or would they be permanently stuck in the fixed mindset? I feel like the kids future was not worth all the evidence she provided. From the reading standpoint, I believe that all her research was good. It made her novel extremely convincing.

At best, such discussion can lead to an increased understanding of others, greater tolerance, self-acceptance among students dealing with such issues on a personal basis, and a decrease in name called and violence” (pg. 10). I most certainly agree with this statement. I think that discussing topics about sexual orientation are important to discuss with middle school students and also explaining the effects of name-calling. I believe that using the story The misfits in a middle school classroom would be a great book to incorporate the effects of
